Mississippi Outlaws Slavery

Postby saxitoxin on Mon Feb 18, 2013 11:50 am

The 13th Amendment to the Constitution, which abolished slavery, was ratified in 1865. Mississippi voted to ratify the amendment in 1995 but failed to make it official by notifying the U.S. Archivist.

In a statement given to a sergeant with the Wharton County Sheriff’s Office, Andrew Mendoza, 29, waived his assorted rights and told of a late night encounter with a brown horse. “I was trying to make the horse have a baby,” Mendoza explained. “I was thinking it would have a horseman baby.”

He got off cos he claimed it was pony-and-trapment.
And remember what the poet said – “in booty there is loot, and in loot booty.” Or sump’n like that.

I'm surprised they found someone who could write the amendment let alone file it.

Mississippi never did ratify the amendment... some claim it was an "error", but others call it a "statement".

Regardless, the amendment did become part of the constitution and is part of the law of the land.. even in Mississippi.


(ps.. better be careful Saxi, or you might be accused of listening to NPR ;) )

He quotes CBC all the time which is very similar in many respects to NPR.
